Lifetime's "Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid" follows six aspiring models and their mothers. The series puts them through an eight-week training program set in New York City. The show's Host and Executive Producer Yolanda Hadid explains what's in store for this series.

"I wanted it to be more like a positive reinforcement where these girls leave after two months and say wow I really learned something," says Hadid. This competition series uniquely has no elimination round, rather weekly winners. Ultimately one contestant will be crowned with a management contract, with a potential opportunity to be represented by IMG Models in New York.

Hadid's two daughters Gigi and Bella Hadid are both featured in this season as mentors for the contestants. "I wanted them to come on and share from the heart, and not from the person that everyone knows in the public," said Hadid.
